SIP stands for the Session Initiation Protocol and is a signaling protocol. It is widely used for controlling multimedia communication sessions especially with VoIP. A SIP trunk establishes a pure IP connection. The VoIP trunk can handle the multi-media options of voice, data, video and mobile connections. DID (Direct Inward Dialing) numbers can be provided from virtually any location in North America and a large number of other countries. This permits enterprises to establish a “virtual” presence with incoming calls ringing at a centralized facility. Direct SIP trunking to IP PBXs (private branch exchanges) and soft switches means no additional hardware to achieve end-to-end VoIP.

V1 VoIP offers you the ability to resell our SIP termination services and solutions to your clients. Here we discuss everything you need to start reselling SIP termination.
SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. SIP termination is a service that allows you to use VoIP technology in order to make outgoing voice calls to external phone networks around the world. SIP trunking is the use of VoIP to facilitate the connection of a private branch exchange (PBX) to the Internet. In effect, the Internet replaces the conventional telephone trunk. This allows an enterprise to communicate with fixed and mobile telephone subscribers worldwide.
In order to take advantage of SIP trunking, a business must have a PBX that connects to all internal end users, an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP) and a gateway that serves as the interface between the PBX and the ITSP. One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice and video in a single line, eliminating the need for separate physical media for each mode. The result is reduced overall cost and enhanced reliability for multimedia services.
When talking about its service to communicate on a broader level, SIP termination provides features such as:
* Video conferencing
* Voice calls
* Streaming media
* Instant messaging
* Playing online games

SIP Trunking is a way that V1 VoIP resellers can really give their business customers the communications that they are looking for while saving them money each month doing it. But there are costs associated with having SIP Trunks. Some depend on how you use it while others are ongoing each month. As a V1 VoIP reseller, you determine how much you want to charge your customers for their SIP Trunk needs.
Here are some of the ongoing monthly SIP Trunking costs:
A call path is used for each phone call connected to the outside world. You’ll need as many call paths as you require concurrent phone calls. V1 VoIP offers resellers the choice of unlimited usage or metered call paths. Unlimited usage includes domestic inbound and outbound calls. Metered service means paying for phone calls on a per minute basis, much as you did with your old phone service.
The more SIP Trunk groups you have, the more call capacity you have. So depending on your call volume you may have one to many SIP Trunk Groups. Ask us about bundling it into the monthly call path costs.
While rates for international calls vary for each country V1 VoIP resellers still offer this around the world service for up to 30% less than a typical carrier, providing a business huge savings.
V1 VoIP charges monthly for each toll-free number you have. You will also be charged for toll free usage.
Surcharges, Taxes and Fees
You can’t avoid these surcharges, taxes and fees, even with SIP Trunking service. But you can reduce them significantly with SIP trunking systems because they’re based on your monthly costs. Lower monthly charges mean fewer surcharges, taxes and fees.
The phrase “SIP Trunking” or “SIP Trunks”, is increasingly common in the world of telecom. In the last few years, the telecommunications industry has standardized on SIP as the protocol of choice for phone calls on the data network. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the technology used for establishing a voice communication session on a data network like the Internet. A SIP “session” might be a regular VoIP phone call between two participants or a multi-party conference call.
What Is SIP Trunking?
A SIP Trunk provides the same service you get from a traditional analog phone line except a SIP Trunk is a “virtual” phone line which is provided by V1 VoIP. We use your data circuit (T1, Cable Modem, DSL, etc) to connect your phone system back to their network.
SIP Trunks Save Customers Money!
Because there are no physical lines that need to be maintained with a SIP Trunk, they are substantially less expensive than traditional telephone service. SIP Trunking can save you up to 50% and more on your monthly bill, depending upon the types and quantities of calls you are making.
What SIP Trunks Do You Need?
The number of SIP Trunks is determined by a few factors. Your Internet connection is an important consideration. SIP Trunks consume bandwidth. Depending upon the quantity of phone calls and need for data bandwidth, you may have to expand your data circuit. First, how many concurrent calls does your business need? As a typical rule of thumb, you’ll need approximately one SIP trunk for each 2-3 users.
